The instant camera or the most commonly known Poloroid cameras was invented in the late 40’s. Polaroid Corporation pioneered and patented instant cameras and film in the 80’s. These cameras used self-developing film to create a chemically developed print within minutes of taking the picture.
In February 2008, Polaroid went bankrupt and discontinued production of its instant film and cameras. With the advent of digital cameras, sales of chemical film by all makers have dropped by more than 25% per year in the first decade of the 21st century.
